I'm going to sign off on the whole Trump era with two observations/predictions

1. Voter turn out
Trump's biggest legacy from his term will be the amount of people on both sides of politics he motivated to get out to vote and hopefully remain connected enough to vote again in the future. Make no mistake about the Biden presidency, he was seen as a tool to get Trump out of office. The hate Trump used to get people out to vote for him was ultimately his downfall, that same hate and division was what motivated the masses to vote him out. 62 % of the Voting Age Population is the largest voter turnout since 1960 and almost 5% more the Obamas first term in 2008 which was the largest voter turnout since 1968 at 57.1%. The sheer numbers make it an amazing achievement. Almost 160 million people voted in 2020 compared to 62 million in 1960. It is actually an amazing achievement that Biden cannot take credit for. I guess hate is a great motivator.

2. Ending hyper-partisanship
For Trump's final act (although unwittingly) his behaviour/actions to usurp democracy should have him found guilty in his 2nd impeachment finally ending the Democrat/Republican hyper-partisanship (tribalism) that has been the stale mate for two decades now. Hopefully that it just the beginning and there is less partisanship moving forward for the good of the country and its people.

Murica!

This made me smile, apparently Joe Exotic of Tiger King infamy was so convinced he was getting a pardon he had a limo ordered standing by outside the jail.

If you guys really want something funny check out parlertakes on twitter. They go through parler, donald.win, etc and basically aggregate all of the best stupidity from his supporters. Its like that Bob Roberts guys posts but turned up to 11. And a lot of its the q anon stuff where they were convinced trump was working some super secret plan all along to arrest all of the baby-eating deep state. Like teh 20k troops were going to turn inward and arrest everyone at the inauguration and trump was gonna walk on stage clapping.

Spend a few minutes on there and you realize on some are just closest racists or greedy and misinformed, a large chunk of them are legitimately mentally ill/deficient/senile.

It very much remains to be seen how much will actually change. Hope springs eternal.


America Celebrates A Return To Pillaging The Middle East And Bailing Out Wall Street Bankers

Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th President of the United States today, after four years of chaos that came with the unexpected Republican outsider that was Donald Trump.

Biden has since addressed America for the first time as President, vowing to end the “uncivil war” in a deeply divided country reeling from racial tensions and and a faltering economy.

The Trump presidency ended with a turbulent 2020, and 400,000 dead Americans whose lungs stopped working because they had not received the stimulus packages and health advice needed to survive the pandemic.

However, the Twitter dictatorship is now over.

No longer will the American people have to worry about their mood swings and personal grievances of the most powerful man in the world.

The anxiety of the last four years will all be a distant memory by spring break, as America looks forward to a President who spends more time behind the scenes, signing off on Federal laws and foreign policy.

After an initially tight November election, Biden eventually tore ahead by six and half million votes – a population almost bigger than every Australia state or territory.

Today, America’s silent majority celebrates.

The librarians, the farmers, the teamsters, the school teachers, the mothers, fathers and the veterans. The real Americans, detached from the Murdoch media class – with real hopes and dreams for their country.

Today, they celebrate a return to zero transparency in the White House, more decade long wars in middle eastern countries they’ve never heard of, more red-tape for health insurance.

But most of all today they celebrate a return to a society that bails out white collar criminals who cause global financial collapses through greed and entitlement.

This is the America that Trump tried to take from them. This is the land of the free.

So much to unpack in a time of crisis, day after day. It’s a free for all at the moment in the framing of what was, is, and may be. It’s okay to want hope, isn’t it? PTTD
